Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has previously scheduled a digital event for PlayStation 5 on 4 June in which the company has then postponed following the on-going George Floyd protests in the United States.
Officially, SIE has yet to announce any replacement date for the event but seems that the company might already have a firm date on its hand. According to a tweet posted by Daniel Ahmad which is a well-known video game industry analyst, an ad on Twitch has stated that the event will take place on Thursday, 11 June at 9 PM British Summer Time (BST).
